Pointe is offered to students who are 12 years of age whom have also had at least two years of ballet and have satisfactory ballet technique, which is determined by the instructor. All Pointe students have passed a Pointe Assessment. Students must also be enrolled in a Ballet class. Pointe class is thirty to forty-five minutes long and involves strengthening exercises, barre warm up, and technique. Pointe takes a large amount of dedication and is demanding on the body. Students who take Pointe are serious and respectful of their endeavor and show a great deal of commitment and love for dance. We offer two nights of Pointe classes for our Pointe II students, our Pointe students are greatly encouraged to attend both evening. Pointe is broken into a beginner class, Pointe I and a more advanced Pointe II class. Pointe is taught by Katie Turner.
